Rated 3 out of 5 by Rakesh05 Great Location, Functional hotel
The Westin Copley Place is a large hotel but stripped down of many must have facilities for Westin Brand.
There is no executive lounge or spa at the hotel. Thus it is a well located functional hotel with no luxury elements.

I booked the room on a very busy time, then when checking in the computers were down. I was able to get checked in and off to my meeting despite the craziness. I was very impressed with the service and pose the staff showed.

Cofortable room. Hotel and lobby quiet but not boring.
Buffet breakfast is overpriced for the assortment offered. Should have a lower cost buffet for those that desire little more than a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee.

I am violently allergic to Aloe. Every amenity was laced with this substance. While I understand that this is not a problem for the vast majority of visitors, it would be nice if Starwood would offer and option on request.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Broadside The hotel locates at the center of Copley Square.
The room is clean and comfortable but a bit of small. The sound insulation is poor. The noise at the hallway echoers especially the loud bang from door closing. It seemed to have a door banging contest through the night.

I enjoyed my very short visit to Boston and staying in your hotel. The room was very pleasant and comfortable, the staff is outstanding and very helpful and the food is delicious. The bar is over-crowded, noisy and dark.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Socrates Quiet oasis inside Copley mall
Separated from the main mall area by a glass bridge, this Westin provides a comfortable home away from home.
New or recently refurbished, clean and comfortable rooms, although most rooms have less than impressive views.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dean10036 This hotel did not meet the standard I expect from Westin
I ended up aborting my stay and departing early because I found the comfort of this hotel to be unsatisfactory and inconsistent with the standards I expect from a Westin.
- The bathroom was small/cramped lacking of comfort amenities (such as a simple shower cap or q-tips).
- I attempted to order room service on my first night but ended up canceling the order after I was told it would be a 45 minute wait for a simple wine & cheese. There were no snacks/beer/wine available in the mini-bar or else we would have gladly used them. The $20 delivery fee for mini-bar supplies was absolutely ridiculous.
- I was awoken throughout the night by opening/closing of every neighboring door--a quality hotel must have better soundproofing.
- I was kept awake from hearing our neighbor talking/laughing through the walls. I later learned that ALL junior suites have adjoining doors. Again, the soundproofing was terrible.
In summary, I booked/paid a premium price for a junior suite because I wanted a comfortable stay. Instead, I found the conditions intolerable.
The only positive experience from my stay is that the front desk staff was accommodating of my need to depart early. Doug(?) attempted to rectify by offering alternative rooms, however, all of the alternatives were equally unsatisfactory. He was extremely profession and courteous (an excellent representation of the Starwood brand), but unfortunately his hands were tied with this specific property.

Parking price extremely high. Restaurant service slow. Had to signal receptionist that we were waiting for a table--waited 4-5 minutes before got attention --they were talking and paying no attention to customers !

Visitors from Australia staying in New York wanting to explore Boston. Your hotel was perfect for comfort and convenience, located close to the historical sights and across the road from Amtrak "Back Bay" Station.

Arrival was welcome and warm - my request for a low floor was received positively straight away.
Guest room desk lamp shade badly stained & clock was set one hour ahead of actual time. Was room really ready?

Rated 3 out of 5 by rks18 Valet area staff needs serious improvement
The front desk staff is very good, but the valet/reception need some serious improvement.
This is the 1st and last impression when a guest leaves, and unfortunately this service needs to be improved drastically.

The Heavenly bed is wonderful, otherwise you can get a lot more for your money at another hotel. They charge for you to print a boarding pass, they charge for internet, there is no breakfast except for meetings.

The room was great - large enough for the four of us. Beds were comfortable and the room had a spectacular view of the Charles River. Breakfast buffet was a great deal for the kids. I would definitely come back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill2500 No Lounge? But great staff
I booked a junior suite for a few weekend nights in December. The location is fantastic. The junior suite is a weird set up and nothing special but we had an incredible view and by contacting the hotel directly we got a better rate than published- so for the money the room was decent. I took this hotel down a lot in rating because it has no platinum lounge and the mediocre breakfast. We took the free breakfast option over the 500 platinum points. The breakfast was okay but the "free breakfast" was only for continental so we had to pay a $7 upcharge each. Better to not offer the breakfast option because it's annoying to get nickel and dimed like that. The staff, however, was excellent. They were friendly and very efficient. Our check-in was great, the breakfast omelet cook was talented and friendly, and the pleasant host who grabbed me a paper. Just a very high quality staff without being patronizing.
One last note, we ate at Turner Seafood attached to the hotel. SPG members get 20% off and we had an excellent meal there. $1 oysters the night we were there. Good staff as well.

Easy/efficient check in. Platinum status recognized with a junior suite upgrade and late checkout offer (which we used). Very good breakfast. Only negatives: small bathroom & slamming doors. Would stay again.

Excellent locations with nearby restaurants, shopping, and local attractions. Staff was excellent. Parking a little bit pricey for overnight parking and the bathroom for junior suite was a bit too small.

If you are in Boston for meetings or a convention this hotel is great. It is right next to the Copley Mall and you can cut through the mall to get to several other places and the convention center
